Looking to gain an edge as a professional technical communicator? Attending the STC Summit this year or local to the DC area? If so, there has never been a better time to take the CPTC Foundation Exam Prep Class and earn your credentials. The class, offered as a preconference session at the STC Summit, will familiarize individuals with the requirements for CPTC Foundation Certification. We will focus on the nine core skill areas of technical communication, topics included in the certification exam, certification test format, and sample questions.
The class cost includes the exam fee. Upon registration, you can take the exam at the end of class on Sunday afternoon or online at a later day, up to May 7, 2018. If you have been studying on your own, you can sit the paper exam on Sunday afternoon.
